Awesome story, though, Jennifer -- I sure enjoyed it!


Thanks! In the future, we have super long-lasting batteries for our communicators.

Re: Finalist stories - where to find them

Thanks for adding mine to the list, Dustin. This one was a finalist in Q3 2013. I really love this story, and I'm excited to see it published.

I'm not aware of a word limit. I'd say if you're unsure, then query.

Amid the recent flurry of responses, my e-mail box is sadly silent. Fingers crossed.

Re: Five Minute Rant

Another rejection from Daily Science Fiction. I made one sale there almost exactly a year ago, and it's been nothing but rejections since then. It's very frustrating to get a taste of pro and then not be able to repeat. Of course I'll keep trying, but ... sigh.

Re: Five Minute Rant

Second-round rejection from Daily Science Fiction, which in itself wouldn't sting quite so much if it hadn't taken them 60 days to do it. At least this was the first market for this story. Plenty of other places to try.

I'm at 205 days with Weird Tales. I should probably send a note to them asking what's going on soon, but seems like they've gone underground. No one is reporting responses.

As I can attest, when they're on a roll, submissions sometimes come back from Clarkesworld within a few hours. Lightspeed's been known to reject in under 20 minutes.
